More Love for Chipboard

Hi there

Our team is still celebrating LOVE this month.
Lets check out what they have created.

Belinda Spencer
I have created a monochromatic layout for the February theme featuring Cocoa Vanilla Studios papers. I have used the word 'Love' from the Love Cherish and Adore words as well as 5 hearts from Nat's Hearts 2. I painted all of my chipboard with three coats of heavy white gesso and then sprayed with Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine followed by a little more gesso to brighten it up.

Alison Bevis
"Totally Love This" Layout created by Alison - I drew a heart shape with a couple of co-ordinating Distress markers, and then adhered a bunch of embellishments around the shape. Most of 'Nat's Hearts' have been inked in pink, the title "Love This" inked and beaded, "Totally" covered with pearlescent ink, 'Loolabelle's Piechart and Heart Embellishments' reminded me of roses so they were inked and beaded to overlay the paper images.

I have decorated a MDF box by papering it with old book pages, then added glitter paste with a stencil. lots of lovely chipboard is layered across the top, I have painted the arrow and doily with matt black paint, and embossed the heart frame and love with aged gold emboss powder

For the February theme I used the beautiful Maja Design "Summertime" paper. Used a Sizzix die Flowers 3-D with silver embossing on the heart. On the second card I covered the ID chipboard with the same paper and embossed the word Love with Lindy's Hibiscus Rose Orange embossing powder.

Thanks for sharing girls

Sandi Feb 20th Inspiration.

Hi everyone, great to have you drop by to check out my latest creations for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard. I've created 3 very different designs to show the you don't need to do 12"x12" layouts to use this amazing product.


The first project I made was a tag, something special to give one of your friends or family members.

I kept the techniques simple so they were both features and blended with the background not to take away from the stenciling and inking. The 'Butterfly' was sprayed with White Gesso Spray with the 'Bubbles' and 'Imagine' being inked with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray ink, covered with 'Glossy Accents' and splatted with white ink. One of the 'Arrows' were sprayed with White Gesso with the 2 smaller 'Arrows' being brush painted with a combo of Lindy's spray ink colours before covering it with a coat of 'Glossy Accents'.

My second creation was a Journal page where I experimented with Lindy's Stamp gang ink sprays, water and stenciling.

The chipboard was used to give depth to this double page with the raw 'Honeycomb' and 'Wrought Iron' was given a coat of colour. The 'Nested Hexagons' were painted with Blue and green Flat Pabio Lindy's spray. The hexagon inserts from the 'Honeycomb' I covered with Kaisercraft papers and inserted some back into the gaps.

The final project I made was a wall hanging, I made one for Christmas and love it so much I thought I'd make another to hang all year round.

The hanging was constructed on hessian which I'd experimented with homemade eco dying. Over a few weeks as I walked past it in my craft room I randomly splattered it with a variety of inks that I was putting back from my creating time. The 'Clock with no face' chipboard piece was covered with Finnabair's rust pastes. Look out for how I did this in coming months at the Imaginarium Design blog. The 'NEW Lamp/sign post' was painted with Dylusions ink and the 'Arrow' was sprayed with White Gesso.

February Projects - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I have a scrapbook page, 2 cards, and a double project life page to share with you made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard. Thes are all from recent classes I taught at Seriously Scrapbooking. 

My first project is a scrapbook page where I've used 2 photos of Rachael and I taking selfies - It's a girl thing :).
My background was created using some watercolour pan paints using a "Painting with plastic" technique. 
The chipboard has all been embossed using Stampendous Shabby Blue embossing enamel - my absolute favourite embossing powder. I love the variety of colours within the enamel and it is also so thick and covers so well. There is even blue glitter within the enamel - hard to see on the photos.
I've used Crate Paper Maggie Holmes "Gather" collection papers cut into lots of strips. I've also used Paper House Productions "Snapshots" embellishments. 
For my next project I've made 2 birthday cards. I've used similar painting techniques and the same paper collection and embellishments as for the above scrapbook page. 
I never seem to have enough birthday cards so I always try to make a few with paper remnants after I've been scrapbooking.

My last project is Weeks 30 and 31 for my "Schultz Family 2016" Project Life Album.
Here is a close up of the LHS. 
I used a "Painting with plastic" technique and watercolour pan paints on some of the white cardstock to create a customised background.
Once again the chipboard has all been embossed using Stampendous Shabby Blue embossing enamel.

Here is a close up of the RHS.  
I've used Crate Paper Maggie Holmes "Gather" collection papers, Paper House Productions "Snapshots" embellishments and a white paper doilie. 
Handwritten journalling is added to many of the cards, and I love using one of my many roller date stamps.
